“POCO F1 price in India has been reduced by Rs 1,000 for all four variants by Xiaomi”
POCO F1 has been a success for Xiaomi, which has been unable to make much headway with its flagship-class Mi smartphones. Thanks to its affordable price tag, POCO F1 sales have been relatively much healthier and the company claims to have sold over 700,000 units of the handset in 3 months. Xiaomi has also announced that the POCO F1 price in India will be slashed permanently in India by Rs 1,000 via online channels. 91mobiles has separately learnt from retail sources that the same price cut will be doled out via offline stores as well.
